About the Event

Two simple ideas lie behind Awakin Talks. First, intrinsically motivated service creates a very different pathways to social change than merely pursuing external impact alone. Second, by simply holding space to share and listen to such stories, we unlock a profound new possibility in society. We start to Awakin -- awaken with kin.

Vinoba Bhave used to say, "What rises up like a fountain, will return in the form of many distributed drops." We feel that, in this era, social change will manifest via many small and decentralized efforts and our hope with this event is to presence those droplets of inspiration -- so everyone is moved to shine their corner of world with great love. We have noticed that when we lead with love, unexpected synergies unfold organically and we very much count on amplifying that magic.

To nurture this intention we are bringing together four diverse, inspirational souls for Awakin Talk on Saturday, 23 December, 2017.

To Stay Connected

In living rooms around the world, small groups of people are coming together for Awakin Circles -- to awaken with kin. The first hour is meditation, where we listen to ourselves; second hour is a circle of sharing, where we listen to each other; and third hour is a meal offering with the host. Given its purely non-commercial stature, none of the value gets reported on national GDP -- and it starts to create a new narrative. In a culture of mistrust, Awakin hosts invite strangers in their homes; in a culture of isolation, such circles build relationships rooted in service; in a culture of consumption and scarcity, we celebrate the idea that everyone can contribute. Join us in any one of the four homes, across Mumbai, for an Awakin Circle More on our Awakin Mumbai page.
